My favorite spot is BlueAcre Seafood with happy Hour on Saturdays and great deals.
A great happy hour can be found on “the Eastside” at the Pearl in downtown Bellevue.

Look out over the Puget Sound in this 175-ft ferris wheel and see Alki Beach, the Olympic Mountains and the skyline. Be sure to grab some souvenirs and fresh seafood!
Be sure to stop by Ivar's Acres of Clams for original fish n' chips or clam chowder before popping in to nearby shops.
